Roxbury High School’s mini-THON committee is at it again with a new fun fundraiser called Flocking! This ongoing fundraiser is weather dependent but will continue through the spring.
“It’s super simple! Flocking is when you harmlessly prank your friends by signing up for us to put a flock of plastic flamingoes on their lawn,” explained the committee.
Roxbury High School’s very own principal, Jeffrey Swanson wasn’t immune to getting flocked! He should have gotten the Anti-Flock Insurance for $5 which would have guaranteed his protection from all the flamingos as they migrate around Roxbury during this fundraising event. His office was flocked and a flamingo was even caught wearing his tie!
If you would like to flock-a-friend, you can choose how many flamingos you want to migrate to your friend’s yard for 24 hours. A small flock of only 10 flamingos is only $15, a medium flock of 30 for $25, or you can choose a large flock of 50 flamingos for $35.
Once the forms are submitted to the mini-THON advisors the Flock Squad takes over. Moving the flamingos is free of change, but a donation is optional. Flamingos are not allowed to flock on public property or apartment complexes.
Funds raised through Roxbury High School mini-THON events will be donated to Four Diamonds. Roxbury High School will host its 5th Annual mini-THON to conquer childhood cancer by partnering with Four Diamonds on Friday, March 16, 2018.
Last year, Roxbury nearly tripled its success from the previous year by having over 400 participants and raising $52,237.82. Roxbury is looking to break $75,000 this year with your help! All mini-THON mini fundraisers are added to the overall total for the year.
Participants of the Roxbury High School Mini-THON 2018 are joining more than 90,000 students in this powerful nationwide movement.
In the U.S., more children die from cancer than any other disease, with 16,000 kids diagnosed every year. We are working to change this by partnering with Four Diamonds to conquer childhood cancer through world-class care, transformative philanthropy and life-saving research.
